About the Edition

The nameless and beautiful narrator of The Gargoyle is driving along a dark road when he is dazzled by what seems to be a flight of arrows. He crashes into a ravine and wakes up in a burn ward, undergoing the tortures of the damned. He is now a monster. His life is over. But it is only just beginning: one day, Marianne Engel, a bewitching sculptress of gargoyles, walks into his room and reveals that they were once lovers in medieval Germany. In her telling, he was a badly burned mercenary and she, a nun and a scribe, nursed him back to health in the famed monastery of Engelthal. As she spins her tale, Scheherezade-fashion, and relates equally mesmerising stories of deathless love in Japan, Iceland, Italy and England, he finds himself drawn back to life - and, finally, to love. The Gargoyle is an extraordinary novel that will take you on a wild and original journey. It will have you believing in love, in miracle and in redemption.
